12th March 1944: railway man

12 Sun. Rather mild, rather dull, calm; notunpleasant (sic). Ciss went to Tolworth with Aunt Hannah and Cousin Harold. Walk along rail path in evening, saw loco 488 one of the big (???) 4-6-0s. The new rail joint do lessen wheel thump to a large extent and there is little or no depression as the wheels run over them; the running of the trains should be much smoother. Distant warning at 9.45 p.m. all clear 1t 10.6 p.m.; no incident. Doris stayed the night.
